Machine Learning & AI Courses

As a former lead at Google,  Founder of, Chairman and Co-Founder of Coursera, and an Adjunct Professor at Stanford University, Andrew Ng is the perfect candidate to teach machine learning. His vast and pioneering experience as an AI researcher will help to build you up from machine learning fundamentals through lectures and coding assignments in MATLAB. Alternatively check out his deep learning website below.

The following series of MOOCs are from Imperial College London's engineering department. The aim of these more focused classes is aimed to deepen understanding when mining big data mining for insights is. These courses cover the role of Linear Algebra and Multivariate Calculus in machine learning, particularly deep learning.

Specialised Engineering Courses

These courses are more niche in their application or industry size but are equally interesting and accessible to an Engineering Mathematics student.
